I’ve asked some of my favorite creative mamas to help out while I’m away with our new baby. Today, one of my favorite stationers â€“ and mama of two boys! â€“ Lisa fromÂ Good on PaperÂ is sharing the adorable foodie invitations that she created for her son Theo’s 2nd birthday party! â€“Nole
Hi there! Â Today I’d like to share the invitations I designed for my son Theo’s 2nd birthday party. Each year, for both of my boys, I choose a party theme based on what he is really into at the moment. One year the party had a “round” theme, another year it was a “smile” theme, and earlier this year, my son Lucas had a “superhero” theme for his 4th birthday. This year, I was a little unsure of what kind of party to throw for Theo, but I wanted it to be simple and low key. He generally likes whatever his big brother likes, but no interests or obsessions stood out in particular this year. I realized later that the big difference between Lucas and Theo is that TheoÂ lovesÂ to eat. So why not a food-themed party?Â â€“Â Lisa from Good on Paper
The invitations I designed were inspired by his eight favorite foods, which include: blueberries, peanut butter, pretzels, and bok choy. I photographed each of the foods, and laid them out against a white background so they stood out. Under each photo, I inserted the name of the food, followed by Theo’s own pronunciation. The invitations were flat-printed on heavy, bright white cotton stock, and mailed in a kraft envelope with a custom liner (Theo’s yogurt-covered face). Finally, the envelopes were sealed with a black and white wraparound address label.
This year’s thank you cards were postcards.Â Designed with a full bleed photo of Theo along with his “signature,” these postcards came outÂ super cute while saving money on stamps and envelopes.
